WWE Superstars are on the road most of the year hence they travel together, work out together, and even share accommodation. While working together in WWE, many Superstars have managed to form life-long friendships as they are often in each others company,

Not only does this allow them to have a good time while being away from their families, but it also provides them with emotional and mental support. These real bonds between WWE Superstars has resulted in great matches in the ring.

WWE has used real-life friendships well on-screen and given fans some incredible rivalries.

In this article, we will look at the WWE Superstars who’ve had great on-screen rivalries with their real-life friends in the company.

#10 Former WWE Universal Champions Kevin Owens and Finn Balor 

Kevin Owens regards Finn Balor as his best friend in WWE, and the two have a storied history when it comes to competing in the ring.

Balor signed with WWE in 2014 and appeared in NXT soon after. In 2015, Balor received his first shot at the NXT Championship which was held by Kevin Owens. After an unsuccessful first attempt, Balor received another shot at the title at The Beast in the East in Tokyo, Japan, where he went on to become the NXT Champion.

Their rivalry continued as Owens faced Balor in a Ladder Match for the title at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, but he failed to defeat The Demon.


The Prizefighter has labelled Balor as his dream opponent for WrestleMania, and has called him his best friend while speaking to NOLA:

"If you say past, it's Shawn Michaels hands down. If you say present, Sami Zayn and I have had such a rich history, I feel like a one-on-one match at WrestleMania would be so perfect. But there's also Finn Balor. He's my best friend. He's probably the one guy if I could sit across from in the ring at WrestleMania, that would make my career. Finn and I got to WWE at the same time, and we dived into an unknown territory. We gravitated toward each other very quickly. He's like a brother to me now,"

The two men have had a few matches on the main roster against each other, and we can’t wait to see them be on the same brand once again to give us some more big rivalries and matches.
